Wine Recommendation—Tassel Ridge Iowa St. Croix Rosé

With this recipe, I’d want a fruity, flavorful rosé, and Tassel Ridge Iowa St. Croix Rosé is a good choice. Iowa St. Croix Rosé is a dry rosé with strawberry, raspberry, peach, and nectarine notes and a slightly drying finish. Made from St. Croix grapes grown in our Mahaska County, Iowa, vineyards. Serve at room temperature. —Bob Wersen, Owner, Tassel Ridge Winery.
